Everyone talks of going up Grouse Mountain, well move over Grouse & check out the best uncrowded views of Vancouver and surrounds from Seymour Mountain.
We cheat & take a 1/2 hour car ride from downtown up to Mt Seymour. From there we get into our runners and follow a 45min trail to a rocky outcrop that has 180 degree views looking south over Vancouver, as far east as Mt Baker, and west out to Vancouver Island.
Depending on the sunset time we leave around 6/7pm & return around 9/930.
**side options include a stop in at Vancouver's best taco restaurant for a taco & drink if time permits.
**bring runners or hiking shoes. The trail can get muddy & rocky in places.
Expat Kiwi, Living in Vancouver. Have been in Canada 3 years. Growing up in New Zealand I learnt to be forward with people and help travellers where needed. Picking up hitchhikers, sending them out on fishing boats (our family run a commercial fishing operation ) & suggesting what one should do with their time travelling all came natural and I loved sharing these things with visitors. Personally I'm a 30 yo, run my own importing business (NZ seafood). Sports hobbies are skiing and surfing. I have a 1 yo retriever/collie dog & enjoy exploring the outdoors with her. I'm also a foodie, and enjoy new restaurants, hip & upcoming areas & new designer shops. Didn't take long to get a thorough knowledge of Vancouver & its neighbourhoods. I have a keen ear for listening from other interesting tidbits about the city. Also, my job takes me all over the city from YVR airport to warehouses to downtown restaurants...so from that I've learnt to know my around just as if I grew up here. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
